Dolphins at Giants delayed by lightning

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Miami Dolphins preseason has been delayed.

The kickoff to Friday night's preseason opener has been delayed by lightning in the area. Fans were asked to leave the stands and the teams left the field approximately 10 minutes before the 7 p.m. kickoff. And we're still deayed.

There has been no time given for kickoff, but when the all clear is given, teams will get a 10 minute warmup period, then the coin toss, then the national anthem.

[Update: The MetLife Stadium committee is thinking 7:45ish the teams will be back on the field and kickoff coming around 8:15ish.]

[Update: Teams are back on the field and they are trying for a 7:55ish kickoff.]

As a late change, the Dolphins have decided cornerback Byron Maxwell will not play tonight.

Bobby McCain will start at cornerback in Maxwell's spot.
